Askvik kapell

Askvik kapell (Askvik "chapel") is a small chapel with its own cemetery. It is placed on the outskirts of the village of Ostereidet (which I have mentioned several times before). The chapel was initially consecrated in 1926, but both the chapel and the cemetery were replaced in the '90s. However, the chapel was allowed to deteriorate by the local authorities, but now a local committee has raised funding for the necessary repairs and the work has started. The plan is to be finished for the 80 years jubilee in August 2006.

I hope they will succeed since a large part of my family has been buried here.
